Not everyone likes the AYCE buffet at Pickering’s new casino
All You Can Eat (AYCE) buffets are a thing of beauty – who would impart the freedom to pay a fee and eat unlimited plates of food, without having to think about the price of each plate?
Toronto has its fair share of AYCE restaurants as well as many popular hot pot and Indian buffet restaurants.
Now there’s a new AYCE buffet hidden away at a casino that recently opened in Pickering. The verdict? From early social media posts, it seems not everyone likes him so far.
In a recent video, a user by the name of gtadealmom posted about her experience at the Pickering Casino buffet. She was not impressed.
His video shows what diners can expect to get for $35.
On the menu that day, the buffet included:
- two pans of pasta (pesto and bolognese)
- two pizzas that look like they came out of a box
- mashed potatoes
- grilled vegetables
- grilled chicken
- few cups of what looks like a 7 layer dip with a tray of Tostidos alongside
- plastic cups of meat and cheese skewers
The comments below the video mostly express disappointment, with the general consensus that for the price, it’s not worth it.
Google reviews are more balanced, with one person suggesting it’s a “great buffet with a quality meal and great service” and another saying “the salmon was overcooked”.
According to the casino’s website, the buffet is “unique” with “5 interactive stations” and is a “Jackpot of flavors”.
The restaurant is open Wednesday through Sunday and actually costs extra ($45) on Fridays and Saturdays when the buffet offers additional offerings like slow-roasted prime rib and a “seafood shushi bar.”
